As University General Counsel, I advised senior university officials and counseled the purchasing, procurement, construction, research, student affairs, public television and other departments. As a judge on the state’s intermediate appellate court, I heard over 1000 appeals in all areas of law including cases involving breach of contract, personal injury, medical malpractice, real estate administrative law, domestic relations, insurance coverage, civil rights, securities, intellectual property, constitutional law and employment.

Experienced arbitrator in over 200 commercial, construction, employment and class arbitrations with amounts in controversies up to $100 million. Commercial disputes arbitrated have included virtually all areas of the law including disputes in the health care industry, medical partnerships, pharmaceuticals, legal malpractice, construction, insurance coverage, and banking. Arbitration experience includes participating in a mass claims arbitration involving thousands of state employees and serving as the sole arbitrator in over a dozen regional and national class arbitrations.
I served as Chair of an ABA Task Force on ADR and E-Commerce which developed guidelines for the use of ADR in electronic commerce and currently serve as chair of an ABA task force examining the use of ADR to resolve corporate governance disputes. I am also a panelist with the National Arbitration Forum where I regularly arbitrate domain name disputes. I am the Chair of the City of Phoenix Civil Service Board.
